Each year, thousands of members of the Northeastern community–alumni, parents, students, and friends–descend on the Boston campus to celebrate Homecoming.  From affinity gatherings and sporting events to a memorable comedy show and the ever-popular FanFest Tailgate, there is truly something for everyone!



Homecoming 2019

This year’s Homecoming will take place November 6—11.  Beginning on Thursday night, we will enjoy this year’s Homecoming Headliner in Matthews.  Saturday  night will be the FanFest Tailgate outside Matthews arena before cheering on the Men’s Hockey team as they go against Merrimack College.  Veterans Day will be observed on Monday, Nov. 11 where the Northeastern University ROTC Alumni Society will meet for lunch before the university’s Veterans Day Ceremony.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
